Notes: Beware of the NHTSA complaint data for the 2007 Corolla. It is almost certainly misleading.

The problem with NHTSA data for the 2007 Corolla is that for months on end, the news media repeatedly told the public that several Toyota models have an unintended acceleration defect, & to go to (the NHTSA's website) to file a complaint.

So, the NHTSA received a disproportionate number of complaints about Toyota unintended acceleration issues because of the national news media attention, to the point where now the NHTSA data is unreliable taken in context with any other vehicle that did not receive national news attention. typically receives more complaints per day about vehicles than the NHTSA does, but the news media did not repeatedly say "go to to report your Toyota acceleration problems" like they did about the NHTSA -- so although we have less complaint data than the NHTSA for the 2007 Corolla, our data for the Corolla is a far more statistically accurate representation of the Corolla's reliability than what the NHTSA data shows.

Corolla 4-cyl

On wed Oct 23 I was driving on the freeway in the middle lane. The weather was perfect, no rain, clear blue skies and about 70 degrees. It was apprx 12:00 pm (mid-day). Out of nowhere I heard a loud band on top of my roof and glass started flying off the back of my car. I pulled over to see what happened and there was a huge hole in the middle of my sunroof and the rest of the glass around it is shattered. It was such a bizarre experience I couldn't figure out what would have cause this. It was like the sunroof had exploded for no reason. Then on October 25 I saw an article that a lot of Kia's sunroofs had been exploding! that is no coincidence. I know my car is a Toyota, not a Kia, but the sunroof exploded out of nowhere and the article sounds exactly like what happened to me. Fortunately I had the flap closed so there was no injury to me. Please help with this. I don't know what to do next and I wouldn't want to pay $800 for a defective window! I have pictures of my window from the day it happened. I also have a claim from my insurance co.
